Celtics blow another big lead, lose to young Pelicans in OT 120-115
Well it has a happy Sunday for fans. Fans of the Pelicans that is. They completed the largest comeback in franchise history. Brandon Ingram led the victorious Pelicans with 33 points and Zion Williamson added 28.
For the Celtics Jayson Tatum finished with 32 points and had a beautiful floater to extend this game into OT, but it never should have come to that. The theme of the Celtics blowing big 2nd half leads continues.
I completely fell in love with potential Celtics trade target Josh Hart. He played great defense, was the guy who seemed to always end up with the loose ball or rebound, and honestly he was the difference in the game. Hart finished the game with 17 points, 10 rebounds, and 3 blocks.
Robert Williams was a bright spot for the Celtics seemingly blocking everything and skying over defenders for alley-oop finishes. Time Lord earned his spot as the big man on the floor in OT. Williams finished with 8 points, 13 rebounds, and 4 blocks.
Jaylen Brown and Kemba Walker both struggled mightily from the field on the day, especially Kemba. But seriously guys, you need to learn how to not blow a big lead. It's getting redundant and tiresome.
